The works will take place on a site incorporating a fully functioning school. Thus, bidder’s attention is drawn to the following specific requirements:

1. The cluster consist of 5 school sites in the same region, but to visit all 5 schools you have to travel almost 400km. The biggest challenge id the logistics between the 5 sites. Two of the schools can only be reached via a 40km gravel road and not all the suppliers delivered to this point. Therefor material had to be delivered to a central point and then distributed to the other schools. The ready-mix suppliers also only supplied to three of the schools and we had to get another supplier at a higher rate to supply the other two schools. Accessibility for the crane was also a challenge when we had to erect the steel water tanks on a nine meter high stand.

2. During the rainy season these gravel roads was also not accessible by most of the delivery vehicles.

3. We also required supervision on all the sites in order to complete the project within the required period.

4. A further challenge was the information as this project have been set out on tender before each school have been designed and that created delays on the earthworks and platforms.

5. Also the appointment of two ‘main contractors’ for the modular structures with their platforms and earthworks and the civil works with all their own earthworks cause a lot of

coordination problems and delays.
